Do employers have any obligation to report employees who have had recent travel history, or are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with persons who have been infected?

Currently, there are no obligations that have been placed on an employer to report employees. However, as a best practice, it is recommended that employers advise such employees to seek medical help and/or inform the local authorities of their condition. Employers would also need to co-operate with the local authorities for contact mapping and such other measures for containing the spread of the virus.
